Frequently Asked Questions
What is the difference between Delta Sigma Pi and the other professional fraternities on campus?
Delta Sigma Pi is the longest standing professional fraternity on GVSU's campus. This chapter was assisted in the development of John Reifel, who now serves as the Dean of the Seidman College of Business. In result, Delta Sigma Pi has a strong presence on campus and a large alumni network. Many brothers of the Lambda Xi chapter have gone on to work in Grand Rapids and all over the world and make for excellent networking connections.
Is Delta Sigma Pi better than the other professional fraternities?
We do not believe any of the three professional fraternities on campus can be selected as being the best, because "being the best" depends on each person. We encourage all prospective members to explore each of the professional fraternities goals, morals, and members to choose the fraternity that best fits them.
What are the requirements to join?
How much does it cost to be a member?
Every initiated brother in good standing in the Lambda Xi chapter pays $85 each semester. $40 goes to the national fraternity dues and the other $45 goes towards chapter funding to allow for better events. The dues are relativity low compared to most fraternities and sororities.
Am I required to live in a Fraternity house?
No, Delta Sigma Pi does not have a fraternity house. You will not be required to live anywhere.
How are professional fraternities different than social fraternities and sororities?
Professional fraternities are developed around the common goal to be ahead in the job application process after graduation. Every event that Delta Sigma Pi plans is created to better ourselves professionally.
Why is Delta Sigma Pi called a "Fraternity" if it is Co-Ed?
Delta Sigma Pi originally began on November 7, 1907 as an all male fraternity. Later, it became open to both males and females in business and economics studies at universities.
